End the deadlock and Make the NDIS Real

27 July 2012

The Every Australian Counts campaign today called for the deadlock over the launch of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) be resolved without further delay.

“People with disabilities, their families and carers around Australia are despairing at the lack of resolution after the significant progress that has been made on this important and historic reform,” Every Australian Counts campaign director John Della Bosca said.

“The impasse is causing unnecessary anxiety to people who already endure stress from a disability system that is broken,” he said.

“We call on the Prime Minister and Premiers of Victoria and New South Wales to immediately find common ground as soon as possible to allow the proposed launch sites in the Hunter region and Geelong to proceed as scheduled on July 1, 2013.

“This will require some level of compromise from all parties without delay.

“Every Australian Counts campaign’s 125,000 supporters expect a deal done as soon as possible. The people of our nation are unimpressed by another failure by our politicians to settle this dispute in the national interest.”
